Agree SWYL it was nice to see him walking the full length of AO with Goody and Max on Thursday night and then in the rooms talking casually with the players, he’s doing a great job.

He certainly knows what he is doing, Burgess set a very high standard, and Selwyn was there to see it. 
It’s Roadtrips like this that prove to players why the hard work is so strenuous 

2 games in 5 days is an incredible amount of  hard contact

Noticed a friendly fist bump between SG and CO with genuine smiles on both faces that was good to see post match.

He is a crucial part of the team that has kept us up there in the top 4 , 3 and a half seasons in a row

The best "on the road trip" results I can ever remember. Incredibly difficult challenge with the 5 day break and our boys did us , and themselves proud. They were totally shagged in the last quarter v Crows but ran it out. Incredibly clever tactics in the 3rd quarter to put the hammer down and put us in a winning position while they still had the legs. The "Burgess fitness effect" was very noticeable at the Crows last year, not so much this year so far. Very grateful that Selwyn was able to learn from him while he was still at Melbourne. This is one tough football team. Getting vibes of '21 in how galvanised they have become amid all the very loud external noise.

A professional outfit our Demons from the Pres to the boot studder. It's never perfect, hasn't ever been perfect anywhere, but you can see the efforts they make to be connected to each other and the fans.

Definitely agree with others that the players look to be enjoying their footy more as a group so far this year. They've put a crushing September behind them, lost a solider in Angus in outrageous circumstances and been battered pillar to post by the media but they will not yield. 

Win, lose or draw they've earned respect.

Burgess was the single most influential figure to our flag IMO (I know this is highly debatale). However it would appear Selwyn has done a very good job with how seamless the transition has been. We were a bit flat in the back half of 2022 but otherwise we are still pretty healthy, avoid soft tissues injuries as good as any club can, and we are still last quarter beasts most weeks.

Was pleased to see Trac was giving him praise in a post-match interview on Fox. 

Trac looked very sore and stiff after the Port game and by reports carried over the next day or two. I think there were even doubts over availability for a second there.

For him to get up and be easily best player on ground running out the game so well is credit to himself, Selwyn and the rest of the medical/high performance team.

Great point. I had forgotten how banged up tracc was.

He was interviewed on the ground at half time and was struggling to catch his breath (he must he must have just sprinted or something, but still he looked completely knackered).

An amazing performance from tracc - BOG and hard at it all hame

Credit to Selwyn and his team, but huge props to tracc for being in such good shape. Ditto for maxy, who was also huge.

Outof interest, does anyone know aprox how far EPL players would run in a game?

Ummmm! 😀

Between 8 and 12 km depending on the position they play. Average midfielder runs about 11km a game.

Ta.

That's more than I would have guessed in 90 odd minutes of game time.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 11 vs St. Kilda

    It's Game Day and after 2 losses on the trot the Dees must win against the Saints today at the MCG to keep in touch with the Top 4. A loss today will see them drop out of the Top 8 for the first time since 2020.

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    POSTGAME: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    Many warned that this was a danger game and the Demons were totally outclassed all game by a young Eagles team at Optus Stadium in Perth as they were defeated by 35 points.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.
